Winery

Rabbit Ridge started making and selling wine in 1981 and to date has sold over 3 million cases of wine all while staying a family run business. We are also one of the largest wineries on the West side of Paso Robles. Our Mediterranean style winery is an extremely high-tech, gravity flow design that uses the sloping hillside to transfer wine. The crush pad is behind the winery at the very top of the hill. The press area and tank room are 22 feet below the crush pad. The use of gravity flow is much gentler on the grapes, which helps to preserve the quality of our wines. Our tanks are monitored and run by a computer so that all the temperatures and rates of fermentation can be precisely controlled. At the end of fermentation, a graph is printed showing the fermentation temperatures each day during harvest. The winery is also equipped with automatically timed pump-over devices on each tank. These devices allow Erich, Sarah, and Brice to pump-over the red wines at least six times per day, producing a more extracted, colorful, flavorful, full-bodied wine. The bottling room, barrel room, and tasting room are 22 feet below the tank room.

 

We feel very strongly about the use of oak in our winemaking. The use of oak is a personal one for many winemakers and we think it changes the game for better structure, body, and balance in wine. To read an in-depth history and the benefits of oak aging read more...
